In this episode, Jordan and Kute discuss:
There is a profound revolution happening on the planet
Empowerment from letting go
A different perspective on how the generations are relating
A critical gift of the greatest leaders
Sometimes your soul guides you to do something that may not make sense nor be convenient at the moment. Listen to your soul because it will lead you to where you are meant to be.
One of the greatest gifts a leader can give is for others to be able to see who you really are when they can’t see themselves. When they look into your eyes they don’t see their own BS, they see their magnificence
You can’t control the ocean, but you can control how you surf the waves. It is the same with life, you can’t control what happens but you control the meaning that you give to it. Surrender is about letting go of control - it’s letting go of trying to force and manipulate how you think life should be - so that you can truly be available and open to the authentic life that is seeking to truly happen.
The younger generation needs to recognize that people older than them have paved the way for the kind of life they are able to live right now. They must respect their wisdom and experience. Older generations too have a responsibility to give respect, to empower, and to exemplify true leadership to the younger generations. Mutual respect is necessary.
The only way we will truly evolve is to honor the blessing of both the newer generation and the older generation. The younger generation must recognize that the older generation may have the wisdom that they newer generation lacks while the newer generation has the progress and new ideas that the older generation are reluctant to accept.
“When you find your true purpose, that’s when the real challenges begin and those challenges are like soul tests that you have to go through and order to grow through to prepare you to develop the mental, emotional, psychological, spiritual muscle to be able to fulfill your true destiny.” — Kute Blackson
